Swoole is an event-driven asynchronous & coroutine-based concurrency networking communication engine with high performance written in C and C++ for PHP.

Event-based

The network layer in Swoole is event-based and takes full advantage of the underlying epoll/kqueue implementation, making it really easy to serve millions of requests.

Swoole 4.x use a brand new engine kernel and now it has a full-time developer team, so we are entering an unprecedented period in PHP history which offers a unique possibility for rapid evolution in performance.

⚡️Coroutine

Swoole 4.x or later supports the built-in coroutine with high availability, and you can use fully synchronized code to implement asynchronous performance. PHP code without any additional keywords, the underlying automatic coroutine-scheduling.

Developers can understand coroutines as ultra-lightweight threads, and you can easily create thousands of coroutines in a single process.

MySQL

Concurrency 10K requests to read data from MySQL takes only 0.2s!

$s = microtime(true);
for ($c = 100; $c--;) {
    go(function () {
        $mysql = new Swoole\Coroutine\MySQL;
        $mysql->connect([
            'host' => '127.0.0.1',
            'user' => 'root',
            'password' => 'root',
            'database' => 'test'
        ]);
        $statement = $mysql->prepare('SELECT * FROM `user`');
        for ($n = 100; $n--;) {
            $result = $statement->execute();
            assert(count($result) > 0);
        }
    });
}
Swoole\Event::wait();
echo 'use ' . (microtime(true) - $s) . ' s';

Mixed server

You can create multiple services on the single event loop: TCP, HTTP, Websocket and HTTP2, and easily handle thousands of requests.

function tcp_pack(string $data): string
{
    return pack('n', strlen($data)) . $data;
}
function tcp_unpack(string $data): string
{
    return substr($data, 2, unpack('n', substr($data, 0, 2))[1]);
}
$tcp_options = [
    'open_length_check' => true,
    'package_length_type' => 'n',
    'package_length_offset' => 0,
    'package_body_offset' => 2
];
$server = new Swoole\WebSocket\Server('127.0.0.1', 9501, SWOOLE_BASE);
$server->set(['open_http2_protocol' => true]);
// http && http2
$server->on('request', function (Swoole\Http\Request $request, Swoole\Http\Response $response) {
    $response->end('Hello ' . $request->rawcontent());
});
// websocket
$server->on('message', function (Swoole\WebSocket\Server $server, Swoole\WebSocket\Frame $frame) {
    $server->push($frame->fd, 'Hello ' . $frame->data);
});
// tcp
$tcp_server = $server->listen('127.0.0.1', 9502, SWOOLE_TCP);
$tcp_server->set($tcp_options);
$tcp_server->on('receive', function (Swoole\Server $server, int $fd, int $reactor_id, string $data) {
    $server->send($fd, tcp_pack('Hello ' . tcp_unpack($data)));
});
$server->start();

Coroutine clients

Whether you DNS query or send requests or receive responses, all of these are scheduled by coroutine automatically.

go(function () {
    // http
    $http_client = new Swoole\Coroutine\Http\Client('127.0.0.1', 9501);
    assert($http_client->post('/', 'Swoole Http'));
    var_dump($http_client->body);
    // websocket
    $http_client->upgrade('/');
    $http_client->push('Swoole Websocket');
    var_dump($http_client->recv()->data);
});
go(function () {
    // http2
    $http2_client = new Swoole\Coroutine\Http2\Client('localhost', 9501);
    $http2_client->connect();
    $http2_request = new Swoole\Http2\Request;
    $http2_request->method = 'POST';
    $http2_request->data = 'Swoole Http2';
    $http2_client->send($http2_request);
    $http2_response = $http2_client->recv();
    var_dump($http2_response->data);
});
go(function () use ($tcp_options) {
    // tcp
    $tcp_client = new Swoole\Coroutine\Client(SWOOLE_TCP);
    $tcp_client->set($tcp_options);
    $tcp_client->connect('127.0.0.1', 9502);
    $tcp_client->send(tcp_pack('Swoole Tcp'));
    var_dump(tcp_unpack($tcp_client->recv()));
});

Channel

Channel is the only way for exchanging data between coroutines, the development combination of the Coroutine + Channel is the famous CSP programming model.

In Swoole development, Channel is usually used for implementing connection pool or scheduling coroutine concurrent.

The simplest example of a connection pool

In the following example, we have a thousand concurrently requests to redis. Normally, this has exceeded the maximum number of Redis connections setting and will throw a connection exception, but the connection pool based on Channel can perfectly schedule requests. We don't have to worry about connection overload.

class RedisPool
{
    /**@var \Swoole\Coroutine\Channel */
    protected $pool;

    /**
     * RedisPool constructor.
     * @param int $size max connections
     */
    public function __construct(int $size = 100)
    {
        $this->pool = new \Swoole\Coroutine\Channel($size);
        for ($i = 0; $i < $size; $i++) {
            $redis = new \Swoole\Coroutine\Redis();
            $res = $redis->connect('127.0.0.1', 6379);
            if ($res == false) {
                throw new \RuntimeException("failed to connect redis server.");
            } else {
                $this->put($redis);
            }
        }
    }

    public function get(): \Swoole\Coroutine\Redis
    {
        return $this->pool->pop();
    }

    public function put(\Swoole\Coroutine\Redis $redis)
    {
        $this->pool->push($redis);
    }

    public function close(): void
    {
        $this->pool->close();
        $this->pool = null;
    }
}

go(function () {
    $pool = new RedisPool();
    // max concurrency num is more than max connections
    // but it's no problem, channel will help you with scheduling
    for ($c = 0; $c < 1000; $c++) {
        go(function () use ($pool, $c) {
            for ($n = 0; $n < 100; $n++) {
                $redis = $pool->get();
                assert($redis->set("awesome-{$c}-{$n}", 'swoole'));
                assert($redis->get("awesome-{$c}-{$n}") === 'swoole');
                assert($redis->delete("awesome-{$c}-{$n}"));
                $pool->put($redis);
            }
        });
    }
});

Producer and consumers

Some Swoole's clients implement the defer mode for concurrency, but you can still implement it flexible with a combination of coroutines and channels.

go(function () {
    // User: I need you to bring me some information back.
    // Channel: OK! I will be responsible for scheduling.
    $channel = new Swoole\Coroutine\Channel;
    go(function () use ($channel) {
        // Coroutine A: Ok! I will show you the github addr info
        $addr_info = Co::getaddrinfo('github.com');
        $channel->push(['A', json_encode($addr_info, JSON_PRETTY_PRINT)]);
    });
    go(function () use ($channel) {
        // Coroutine B: Ok! I will show you what your code look like
        $mirror = Co::readFile(__FILE__);
        $channel->push(['B', $mirror]);
    });
    go(function () use ($channel) {
        // Coroutine C: Ok! I will show you the date
        $channel->push(['C', date(DATE_W3C)]);
    });
    for ($i = 3; $i--;) {
        list($id, $data) = $channel->pop();
        echo "From {$id}:\n {$data}\n";
    }
    // User: Amazing, I got every information at earliest time!
});

Timer

$id = Swoole\Timer::tick(100, function () {
    echo "⚙️ Do something...\n";
});
Swoole\Timer::after(500, function () use ($id) {
    Swoole\Timer::clear($id);
    echo "⏰ Done\n";
});
Swoole\Timer::after(1000, function () use ($id) {
    if (!Swoole\Timer::exists($id)) {
        echo "✅ All right!\n";
    }
});

The way of coroutine

go(function () {
    $i = 0;
    while (true) {
        Co::sleep(0.1);
        echo "📝 Do something...\n";
        if (++$i === 5) {
            echo "🛎 Done\n";
            break;
        }
    }
    echo "🎉 All right!\n";
});

🔥 Amazing runtime hooks

In the latest version of Swoole, we have added a new feature to make sync PHP network libraires to be coroutine libraires with only one line of code.

Just call Swoole\Runtime::enableCoroutine() method on the top of the script and use php-redis, 10K concurrent requests reading data from Redis takes only 0.1s!

Swoole\Runtime::enableCoroutine();
$s = microtime(true);
for ($c = 100; $c--;) {
    go(function () {
        ($redis = new Redis)->connect('127.0.0.1', 6379);
        for ($n = 100; $n--;) {
            assert($redis->get('awesome') === 'swoole');
        }
    });
}
Swoole\Event::wait();
echo 'use ' . (microtime(true) - $s) . ' s';

After you call it, the Swoole kernel will replace the function pointers of streams in ZendVM, if you use php_stream based extensions, all socket operations can be dynamically converted to be asynchronous IO scheduled by coroutine at runtime.

How many things you can do in 1s?

Sleep 10K times, read, write, check and delete files 10K times, use PDO and MySQLi to communicate with the database 10K times, create a TCP server and multiple clients to communicate with each other 10K times, create a UDP server and multiple clients to communicate with each other 10K times... Everything works well in one process!

Just see what the Swoole brings, just imagine...

Swoole\Runtime::enableCoroutine();
$s = microtime(true);

// i just want to sleep...
for ($c = 100; $c--;) {
    go(function () {
        for ($n = 100; $n--;) {
            usleep(1000);
        }
    });
}

// 10K file read and write
for ($c = 100; $c--;) {
    go(function () use ($c) {
        $tmp_filename = "/tmp/test-{$c}.php";
        for ($n = 100; $n--;) {
            $self = file_get_contents(__FILE__);
            file_put_contents($tmp_filename, $self);
            assert(file_get_contents($tmp_filename) === $self);
        }
        unlink($tmp_filename);
    });
}

// 10K pdo and mysqli read
for ($c = 50; $c--;) {
    go(function () {
        $pdo = new PDO('mysql:host=127.0.0.1;dbname=test;charset=utf8', 'root', 'root');
        $statement = $pdo->prepare('SELECT * FROM `user`');
        for ($n = 100; $n--;) {
            $statement->execute();
            assert(count($statement->fetchAll()) > 0);
        }
    });
}
for ($c = 50; $c--;) {
    go(function () {
        $mysqli = new Mysqli('127.0.0.1', 'root', 'root', 'test');
        $statement = $mysqli->prepare('SELECT `id` FROM `user`');
        for ($n = 100; $n--;) {
            $statement->bind_result($id);
            $statement->execute();
            $statement->fetch();
            assert($id > 0);
        }
    });
}

// php_stream tcp server & client with 12.8K requests in single process

    return pack('n', strlen($data)) . $data;
